Meeting Description: 15th International Conference of the German Association of Semiotic Studies: “Borders”, September 12—16, 2017, University of Passau, Germany

Panel: Semiotic Theories of Media? Prospects and challenges of combining media theory and semiotics

The panel aims to discuss prospects and challenges of a closer co-operation between media theory and semiotics. We intend to focus on the possibilities of a theoretically and empirically justified delineation between signs, on one hand, and media, on the other hand. By facilitating a discussion between epistemologically informed theories of signs and empirically oriented approaches to the analysis of media, we expect to advance our understanding of the functioning of signs, media, and multimodal communication, to gain new impulses to reflect on signs and media, and to develop new methodologies and methods of their analyses.
